Unless you're waiting in line for your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, it's a sure bet that you'll be sitting by at home for your new device to get delivered today.
Preorders were record breaking for this year's iPhones, but there's a good chance you won't be getting yours delivered by Friday, September 19, 2014. Find out when your delivery will arrive by checking out the guide below.
If you pre-ordered the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus directly from Apple, you can go their site to check on the status of your device.
Head to Apple's Order Status page, then either enter your Apple ID and password, or your order number and email address, to check on the status of your order.
Apple's My Support Page also provides information about when your new device is being prepared, and, subsequently, ready for shipping.
Go to AT&T's Wireless Order Status page to view the status using your part of your order information: either your wireless number, home or work number, order number, order confirmation ID, or bundled account number.
You can also just log in with your AT&T account on the same page using your user ID and password.
With Sprint, all you have to do is go to their My Order page and enter your order number.
This is actually the easiest way to check compared to the other carriers, as no other information besides your order number is needed, which is great if you're on a group plan but not the primary account holder.
From this Order Status Lookup page, you can track your iPhone by entering you order number, billing ZIP code, and last name.
Similar to Sprint, this is great if you're on a group plan and don't have all the relevant account information for it.
If you're on Verizon, check your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus pre-order status by heading to their Order Status page, then either logging in to your Verizon account or entering your order confirmation number and last name.
If you have a tracking number for your preorder, you can go to either FedEx or UPS to check on your order by entering your tracking number, billing phone number, or order confirmation number to track your shipment.
